222 Members Hailed Amber Alert Heroes!
When a child goes missing, Amber Alerts are distributed via text message and are also shared on digital interstate signs across the state. We've all received these messages at some point, but not many of us can say we are the reason a child has been rescued from potential harm.
An Amber Alert was canceled recently after two children taken from St. Petersburg were found safe in Madison County. On a Thursday afternoon, the Amber Alert was received by Rabun "Trip" Adams, Alex Cardenas, and Bradley Dees while working in Madison on the West Lake Terminal Transfer Project with C and C Power Line, Inc.
The alert indicated the children were believed to have been taken in a vehicle matching the description of a vehicle our members later discovered was parked at the hotel they were staying in that night. Thanks to their quick response to the alert, deputies arrived and were able to rescue the children with no incident; the suspect was taken into custody by deputies on a warrant issued by the St. Petersburg Police.
The attention to detail and the overall awareness Trip, Alex, and Bradley displayed not only rescued these two children, but is also a life-saving trait in our industry. We are very proud of their actions and glad we can call them our brothers!
